Miscarriage after Miscarriage

Posted by on May. 7, 2015 at 1:10 PM

 I have a history of miscarriage, I've had 8 altogether, from the age of 16 to 22. I recently suffered from two miscarriages one on February 20th, 2015 and one on April 2nd, 2015. I was told they should be testing me to see if something is seriously wrong, but they won't, because I've had one child already, they told me I'd need to wait another year to see if I can get pregnant on my own. Is this right? Or should I get another doctors opinion? I'm suffering from depression after all of these losses. I'm not sure how to feel about this. Or if I should just give up and give my body time to recover fully. And if so, how long is that? My doctor has been absolutely no help, so I'm reaching out to you mama's for some advice. I'd love for my daughter to have a sibling to grow up with, but I'm starting to lose hope.

My only problem is finding a doctor in my area that accepts my insurance. I'm at a loss, I figured he would have offered testing seeing as how many I have had. He blamed it on me being young... I know lots of young mothers with many children.

Get a second opinion. Definitely.

Find all the doctors around you in the distance you're willing to travel. Call them and ask if they take your insurance. One of them has to :/

I'm so sorry for your losses honey!!  A doctor should never blame you for a loss!!  It wasn't your fault!!  I would never go back to that doctor.  Please seek another opinion.

Find another dr. They should be doing testing for everything to find out what is happening. Hope things go better. I'm sorry for every loss you have endured. I had issues finding RE also that took my insurance. Procedures arent covered but labs, visits, u/s are. Call your insurance and ask them for help. Sometimes they don't even know, perhaps call several or check online? That's how I found mine, she's over 3 hrs away but completely worth it. Also try another OB too, they could at least do all testing or labs and basically get the ball rolling.

 Thank you ladies, I am looking as of now. We just don't have any military bases close enough for me to go to. I might have to change my insurance from Tricare Prime to Tricare Standard so I can go wherever, just with a co-pay.

Find a midwife ASAP and get a progesterone test. OB's are absurd. I literally can't stand how they won't give you a test. I even makes my husband angry. I can get tests through my midwife for $35.

You shouldn't have to wait, since you have a clinical reason to look further.  You may want to bypass your OB and go straight to a fertility specialist.  It's possible that your OB just doesn't have the expertise or the tools to help you.

Sounds like you may need some genetic testing and/or uterine testing.  It could be as simple as a low progesterone issue.  Considering you've had so many (and several within a short time span) I'd seek help sooner rather than later.

Good luck!

he's a careless jerk and should have at least referred you to someone. Most docs will help the moment you feel stressed about it. get a new doc asap! how soon do you miscarry and have they put you on progesterone? have you had your thyroid chekced that will cause miscarriage too. hugs to you babe!
